CALGARY Carey Price Jersey , Alberta (AP) —retired the jersey of Jarome Iginla, Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk played the role of spoiler.Dubnyk made 35 saves Saturday, and the Wild beat Calgary 4-2.“You know they’re going to come with a pretty hard push at the beginning of the game,” said Dubnyk, who stopped 27 of- 8 shots in the opening 40 minutes to keep the game tied at 1-1. “They’re a good team and they play well here. I thought we did a good job weathering it.”Matt Read put the Wild ahead to stay in the third period by deflecting a puck off the skate of Calgary’s Mark Jankowski and past goaltender Mike Smith.Eric Staal, Ryan Suter and Ryan Donato also scored for Minnesota, which won its fifth straight.Sean Monahan and Travis Hamonic scored for Calgary, which had its seven-game winning streak halted.The Flames raised Iginla’s No. 12 to the rafters in a pre-game ceremony that lasted nearly an hour and delayed the start by 10 minutes. Iginla retired last summer after 20 NHL seasons, 16 with the Flames.Flames goaltender Mike Smith said the event was special.“I had goose bumps for most of that ceremony,” Flames goaltender Mike Smith said. “I had the privilege to play against Jarome for a few years and it was a special night to be a part of.”The Wild remain in the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference, one point behind of Dallas and one point ahead of Arizona. Calgary leads San Jose by five points atop the Pacific Division.Dubnyk was the story for Minnesota, which was outshot 37-23. Making his sixth straight start Jeff Petry Jersey Kids , Dubnyk was especially sharp in the opening 40 minutes, when he was peppered with 28 shots. He stopped all but one and improved to 26-21-5.Making his seventh start in nine games, Smith had 19 saves. He had his win streak stopped at five games and fell to 19-12-2.Suter’s goal made it 3-1 at 11:07. After Hamonic cut the deficit to one at 14:29, Donato’s long shot go past Smith at 18:18 and put the game out of reach.“The way (Dubnyk) was playing helped. I think it brought confidence to our team,” said Staal.Donato (2-5-7) and Staal (2-5-6) extended their point streaks to five games.Down 1-0 after the first period, Calgary evened the score with the only goal of the second.Johnny Gaudreau found Monahan in front and he steered in the pass for his 30th goal. The 24-year-old Monahan reached 30 goals for the third time in six NHL seasons.Minnesota opened the scoring at 3:17, when Staal one-timed a pass from Jason Zucker.The Flames thought they had tied the score a couple minutes later when Sam Bennett cut hard to the net off the wing and had Austin Czarnik bang in his rebound. However, Bruce Boudreau challenged it for goaltender interference and upon review, the call was reversed.Bennett caught Dubnyk’s pad with his skate and knocked the goaltender off balance.NOTES: Iginla, the longtime Calgary captain, is the franchise leader in games (1,219) Jonathan Drouin Jersey , goals (525), and points (1,095). A much sought after ticket in Calgary since the jersey retirement was announced, the red-clad patrons in a Saddledome witnessed an emotional tribute that included a stirring video narrated by Lanny McDonald, who along with Mike Vernon are the other two players with their numbers retired. … Zach Parise (foot) didn’t play for Minnesota. … The Wild’s opening goal ended a stretch of 430:41 in which Calgary had not trailed. The last time the Flames faced a deficit was Feb. 14. … Oliver Kylington (lower body) missed his third game.UP NEXTWild: Host Nashville on Sunday.Flames: Host Toronto on Monday. SUNRISE, Fla. — The Florida Panthers (10-10-5) should be well rested when they play host to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.With no game Sunday or Monday, it’s the Panthers’ biggest break since they got back from Finland one month ago.“It was our fifth game in eight days,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said of Saturday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. “We started the week with a back to back, and we ended with a back to back. You could tell our tank was a little bit empty toward the end.”Article continues below ...Indeed, the Panthers have blown multi-goal leads in two of their past three losses.Meanwhile, the Bruins (14-8-4), who are Florida’s rivals in the Atlantic Division http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-karl-alzner-jersey , have also been off since Saturday, although they did have to make the trip down to Sunrise while the Panthers rested.Boston is trying to win now while also breaking in young players, and that’s especially true on defense, where injuries have taken out the Bruins’ top two players: Zdeno Chara and Charlie McAvoy. Chara is out with a knee injury, and McAvoy has a concussion.Two other Bruins defensemen who have played this season are also on injured reserve: Kevan Miller (throat) and top rookie Urho Vaakanainen (concussion).Due to those injuries, the Bruins have been forced to play rookie defensemen Connor Clifton, 23; and Jeremy Lauzon, 21. Between the two of them, they have just 22 games of NHL experience.The Bruins will rely on their more experienced defensemen — Brandon Carlo, John Moore, Torey Krug and Matt Grzelcyk — for most of the playing time against a potent Panthers offense.The hottest Panthers forwards at the moment are Jonathan Huberdeau, who has a five-game Jonathan Bernier Jersey Womens , multi-point streak; and Mike Hoffman, who has 24 points in his past 23 games.Panthers center Vincent Trocheck, who has scored 54 goals the past two seasons, is out with a fractured ankle. But the Panthers still have captain/center Aleksander Barkov (10 goals, 23 points), winger Evgenii Dadonov (12 goals, 26 points) and a power play that has scored in 14 of their past 15 games.Defenseman Keith Yandle, the quarterback of Florida’s power play, earned career assist No. 40 on Saturday.The job of being the last line of defense against that offense on Tuesday will likely belong to Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, who is off to a 6-5-2 start with a 2.59 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage.Boston’s offense is also making an adjustment that skews younger. Center Patrice Bergeron, 33, who scored 30 goals last season and has nine this season Mike Reilly Jersey , is out due to a shoulder injury.David Pastrnak, 22, leads the Bruins in goals (19) and points (30). Jake DeBrusk, also 22, has 10 goals after scoring 16 last season.The Bruins are also still looking for breakthroughs from players such as Ryan Donato, a rookie from Harvard who produced nine points in 12 games late last season and has two goals and no assists in 13 games this season.“We’ve got some young wingers who are learning their way,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.After Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, Cassidy bemoaned Boston’s inability to finish chances at the net. But, he added, “there was fire in the group.”
